FARMER - READ THESE FACTS ABOUT FALL FERTILIZER Facts about Fertilizing in the Fall! What Are the Advantages of Fall Fertilisation? • It assures you of more time next spring to get your crop planted early. Each day's delay in planting corn when soil conditions are right can cut yields by one or two bushels per acre. • Reduces soil compaction. Fields are usually drier and firmer in the fall than in the spring. If the soil is compacted in the fall, the damage will be corrected by freezing, thawing, wetting, and drying during the winter. Compaction occurring in the spring may remain through the growing season. • Fertilizer prices are lower in the fall, and your Cargill fertilizer supplier has more time to provide the good service you expect and are entitled to. • Proper fall fertilization speeds up the decomposition of crop residues. The stalks, roots, and stubble are turned into rich humus more rapidly. • How about loss of Nutrients? The University of Minnesota states, "Fall applications of phosphorous and potassium are acceptable on UNFROZEN FIELDS of all soil types." However, they caution against fertilizing STEEPLY SLOPING, FROZEN GROUND where there is danger of the fertilizer being washed off by heavy rains or rapidly melting snow. Plow-Down vs. Disk-In Plowing down fertilizer is more effective than disking it into plowed ground. With plow down, the nutrients are in moist soil where they are available to the growing plant during periods when the topsoil is too dry to supply nutrients. What about Nitrogen? Ammonium nitrogen applied in the fall is held by the soil clay particles and organic matter and cannot move very far until if is nitrified by soil bacteria. How soon nitrification occurs depends mainly upon soil temperature after application. Most agronomists agree that fall applications of nitrogen should be delayed until the soil temperature at 4 inches depth is 50° F. or less. Many farmers apply half of their ammonia needs in the fall to aid decomposition of crop residues. Fall application of nitrogen is not recommended on SANDY SOILS due to the possibility of loss by leaching. Make arrangements now for all your fertilizer needs---using CARGILL Fertilizer!
